Q: My daughter has come back home after recently splitting with her boyfriend. They were saving for a house but on her own she does not have quite enough for a deposit and is unlikely to get a big enough mortgage based on her salary. I am in a position to buy a house for her, but I need a return on my money. Although I could just charge her rent I would prefer the house to be in her name. I am however conscious that I would need to protect my interest in the property as her circumstances could change in the future. Would formally setting up a private mortgage provide this protection?
Q: Now they have stopped legal aid for divorce cases, is there any reason why my estranged husband and I can't represent ourselves in court without using Solicitors? Our separation is quite amicable.
